WHAT’S THE UNGA 2017 EVENTS GUIDE?
This website is a community-curated guide to official and side events at the 2017 United Nations General Assembly (UNGA). We hope this guide will help you navigate the hundreds of events at UNGA and join our global community of innovative thinkers who will convene, collaborate and strategize over the course of these exciting two weeks.
While extensive, this guide is by no means exhaustive – you can post your own events directly to the site and/or share events with friends and colleagues.
On September 13-26, leaders from around the world will convene at the 2017 United Nations General Assembly in New York City. This yearly gathering features more than 150 main and side events where world leaders will gather to discuss some of the biggest challenges facing humanity today – from global security and human rights, to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals for a brighter and more equitable global future.
